Funded by Infrastructure Canada (INFC), the Municipal Asset Management Program (MAMP) is an eight-year $110 million national initiative whose goal is to enable Canadian municipalities to manage their infrastructure assets more strategically and thereby improve the quality of public infrastructure services for Canadians in the future. Managed by FCM, in close collaboration with provincial and territorial municipal associations (PTAs) and other stakeholders, MAMP has two complementary priorities: reinforce municipal and local community capacity in infrastructure assets planning, management, data collection and reporting; and generate new knowledge in municipal infrastructure management to inform federal policy and other stakeholders’ initiatives that advance asset management and infrastructure practices.
MAMP’s direct funding program is a subset of MAMP and provides application-based funding to municipalities to conduct projects which further their adoption and development of asset management practices.
The Project Officer provides assistance and guidance to applicants to FCM’s MAMP funding programs for municipalities, while providing superior client service in all phases of the funding life-cycle. The Project Officer is responsible for reviewing applications for quality, completeness and adherence to application criteria, summarizing peer review assessments and recommending files for approval. The Project Officer is also responsible for guiding the applicant through the grant agreement signature, execution and fund disbursement processes.
